2022 Mercedes-AMG S63e Plug-In Hybrid Looking Ready For Production

2022 Mercedes-AMG S63e Plug-In Hybrid – The brand new Mercedes S-Class already offers a variety of options for powertrains, ranging from inline-sixes up to the powerful V12 which is only available for the longer version. It is expected that the Benz models as well as the Maybach models are soon to be added to the lineup by an AMG model, which will be bearing the E-Performance brand to make up the line of performance cars that are electrified. A mock-up that is covered in a thin layer that is a sliver of its S63e (name not yet confirmed) is now being observed by our spies and reveals its hybrid plug-in design by showing fuel caps on the rear fenders as well as on both sides. It’s clear that we’re talking about the AMG version, given the numerous clues: Panamericana grille, larger air vents, lower ride height, large brakes as well as a quad-exhaust that runs along on the back diffuser.

Interior

The old duct tape is used to the wires that appear to be running from inside to the interior of the vehicle through the door in the rear from the driver’s side beneath the prototype. AMG is likely to be working on final tweaks for the S63 hybrid, by testing the electric Limousine near and at Nurburgring. Based on the camouflage style it is likely to happen sooner than later.

Engine

The S63e is believed to have a twin-turbo V8 gasoline engine which will work in conjunction alongside an electric motor to produce an estimated output of more than 700 horsepower. Some have suggested plans for a more powerful S73e, with around 800 hp that could be used as an indirect S65 successor. Both AMGs are likely to be equipped with only all-wheel drive as well as an automatic transmission.

2022 Mercedes-AMG S63e Plug-In Hybrid Verdict

Keep in mind that a new 800-hp AMG is getting closer, as a brand new version of its flagship model of the updated GT 4-Door Coupe will be unveiled in the next few months, with the option of electrifying its V8. Naturally, the most important feature of Affalterbach’s forthcoming electrified line-up will be the F1-powered One hypercar that will be available to customers at the end of this year, after lengthy delays.
